                [Verse 1]
     Bm                       G
It's four in the morning, the end of December
    Em7                     F#m7
I'm writing you now just to see if you're better
Bm                      G
New York is cold, but I like where I'm living
        Em7                     F#m7
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening
Bm                 C#m                   Bm                C#m
I hear that you're building your little house deep in the desert
Bm                A
You're living for nothing now
              Bm                   A
I hope you're keeping some kind of record

[Chorus 1]
         D                                A
Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                             Bm
She said that you gave it to her
                                  C#m   A
That night that you planned to go clear
G               F#m7
Did you ever go clear?

[Verse 2]
        Bm                        G
Ah, the last time we saw you, you looked so much older
     Em7                      F#m7
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
      Bm                     G
You'd been to the station to meet every train
    Em7                   F#m7
And you came home without Lili Marlene
        Bm         C#m         Bm            C#m
And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
Bm                A   Bm                 A
And when she came back, she was nobody's wife

[Chorus 2]
        D                                   A
Well, I see you there with the rose in your teeth
                    Bm
One more thin gypsy thief
                    C#m   A
Well, I see Jane's awake
G               F#m7
She sends her regards

[Verse 3]
     Bm                     G
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer?
Em7                F#m7
What can I possibly say?
  Bm                       G
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
    Em7                  F#m7
I'm glad you stood in my way
Bm               C#m     Bm                C#m
If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Bm                  C#m      Bm                 A
Well, your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free

[Chorus 3]
         D                          A
Yes, and thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes
                 Bm                        A
I thought it was there for good so I never tried
    D                                A
And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
                             Bm
She said that you gave it to her
                                  C#m    A
That night that you planned to go clear
G             F#m7
Sincerely, L. Cohen
